With the concept of 'Atomic Anxiety', this book offers a novel perspective on one of the most important and longstanding puzzles of international politics: the non-use of U.S. nuclear weapons. By focusing on the fear surrounding nuclear weapons, it explains why nuclear deterrence and the nuclear taboo are working at cross purposes in practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sauer ... shed new light on a phenomenon (and on a country case) that has been explored already in detail and from different perspectives ... . Regarding research design, Sauer skilfully navigates between utilizing, criticizing and enriching the state of the art, and between methodological reflexivity and pragmatism. Regarding theory building, his micro-level focus on individuals, as well as on emotions and fear in particular, opens up new perspectives for research on international norms and for International Relations in general." (Elvira Rosert, International Affairs, Vol. 92 (5), 2016)
